to see the enemy combatant issue become a major issue for the obama administration. >> roger, the fact they are putting this special safety categorization right now, the saturday for the greater community, how long can that last? is there a time frame in which it will expire and they must mirandize him, get him an attorney if he wants one? >> well, i trust what pete williams says on these things and there is a period of time, 36 to 48 hours. it's somewhat fudgible. it will defend when aware enough and coherent enough to begin to answer questions. but remember, the exception is about imminent threat. does he know of any other terrorist plots? has he planted any other devices? it's about the immediate safety and security of american citizens. and once law enforcement has concluded that is not an issue anymore based on his questions, they'll then move on to what will be the traditional questioning and interrogation within the constructs of the civilian law system. >> that's to figure out what went down in all this, but how do investigators begin determining whether or not they were part o
to handle him as what they describe as an enemy combat talent. the obama administration doesn't use that term anymore it allows for an indefinite detention of someone under national security concerns. that's what they are hoping for. we will see what the justice department decides, they haven't yet. but certainly, this issue will find its way to washington. there are various house and senate committees that have already said they plan to investigate exactly issues leading up to this explosion and then the subsequent manhunt and investigation and surely those concerned about how the administration handles him in the coming days. no surprise that this group has already said that they would like this because they say frankly, this is what it's for. you find a terrorist on u.s. soil, this is how they should be treated. democrats this after the into, some have already turned around and said, look, the administration is doing just fine on this, this san american citizen, he has to be afforded his rights, the justice department is acting a i appropriate. >> adrian, our pete williams is rep
system as opposed to somebody who is treated as an enemy combatant and by the way an american citizen may be treated as an enemy combatant will be a political hot potato. i don't think there's any question how the obama administration will come down on it. >> we move on. >> yes, we do. >>> as we mentioned, president obama appeared at the white house briefing room last night. he thanked authorities and said many unanswered questions remain. nbc's kristen welker is there this morning. kristen, good morning to you. >> all in all this has been a tough week. >> reporter: in a late-night appearance in the white house briefing room, president obama praised the quick work of the fbi, state and local officials who brought an end to five days of terror. >> and tonight because of their determined efforts we've closed an important chapter in this tragedy. >> reporter: administration officials say fbi director robert mueller broke the news to the president that federal agents had arrested the second suspect. homeland security adviser lisa monaco also briefed the president. >> how did they plan and car
combatant. how is legal action at this point most likely to move forward? >> reporter: well, the obama administration would never go for that, partly as a policy matter. they have made it quite clear that civilian courts are up to the task and they think in many ways better than military tribunals which are untested. civilian courts have convicted lots of terrorism defendants. it will be a federal case. they'll charge him withes with use of a weapons of mass destruction. the maximum penalty is the death penalty. the government will have to decide whether to seek that or not. there's an additional wrinkle here. he is an american citizen. he was a naturalized citizen last year oddly on 9/11 of last year, and there is an open legal question about whether even if the government wanted to, it could declare an american citizen captured on u.s. soil as an enemy combatant. it's an untested question. the government tried to do it in the case of jose padilla several years ago and as that case was about to go to the supreme court, the government changed its mind and put him into civilian court so
